Welcome to the first episode of Tights and Fights in the year 2024!
We’re joined once again by our old pal Darnell Mitchell. He has a lot of experience booking wrestling shows as well as watching as a fan. He’ll explain how his fandom evolved after the pandemic.
Darnell, Hal and Danielle will take a look at the first major news of the year: the dismissal of Kevin Dunn from WWE. He’s one of the company’s longest tenured producers who many wrestlers have some intense feelings about.
Plus the team takes a look at WWE Day 1, a night that featured a lot of women’s wrestling.
The Main Event
After years of ghosting WWE, The Rock is finally back for more than a brief one-off: He all but confirmed that he’s got his sights set on the Tribal Chief Roman Reigns.
The Three Count
Darnell put over Toni Storm in the AEW World’s End media scrum.
Danielle put over the Maximum Male Models recounting a journey through France.
Hal put over Cody paying for The Wrestle Club to WrestleMania (hopefully not Scott’s Tots Style).
The music for our new promo is provided by Incompetech.com
